Fat Tuesday Round Up


Everyone wants in on a New Orleans-style celebration. Here’s a handy list of restaurants and bars running specials tomorrow.

RA Sushi – This Plano joint is hosting a bash that starts at 9 pm with a special Mardi Gras menu and of course, cheap drinks.

Big Shucks and AW Shucks — Tuesday night, the Cajun boiled shrimp is $8.95 (two bucks cheaper than usual). On Ash Wednesday, get a catfish fillet, two shrimp, two oysters, and fries for $5.95. Every Friday throughout Lent, catch the grilled tilapia, also for $8.95.

Margaux’s — Already cooking Creole/Cajun, but pulling out all the stops with a prix fixe buffet of authentic specialties.

Brownstone Restaurant & Lounge — For the Fort Worth crowd, there’s a special three course menu for $30 and drink specials galore (including $4 hurricanes). A DJ shows up at 9 pm and plays until 2 am.

The Grapevine Bar — Happy hour all day, plus their “Beads and Booze” party. All frozen drinks are $3 (so that means you can also get their signature Everclear bellini), and wells are $2. Beads are free, of course.

Fish City Grill (all locations) — Serving New Orleans-style cuisine all day, and actual festivities (AKA live entertainment and drink specials) begin at 6pm.

Victor Tango’s — Happy hour 5pm-7m. Get half-priced chicken and waffles and $5 hurricanes.

J. Black’s Feel Good Lounge — Bacardi hurricanes and gumbo.

Zanata in Rockwall — Shrimp and grits for $22, plus drink specials.

Keep us posted on your plans and we’ll update if anyone else decides to throw a rager.
